I want to start by telling you a story. Close your eyes and picture the perfect day - nice fluffy white clouds in a big blue sky, a lake, a beautiful beach, your closest friends and your trusty sidekick - your dog.
This was the scene before me. We arrived at the beach and spent a fun couple of hours laughing with friends and throwing the ball into the water for Tori, our 1 year old GSD. It was her first time to this lake and she loved it. Running, splashing in the waves and chasing after her ball. Approximately two hours later we started packing up to head home. Everything was about to take a drastic turn.
